Mind hack – Better than Before Mindset

​​​​​​​I felt a POP

 

This is real bad…

 

I had ruptured the cruciate ligament in my knee at Gaelic Football training

 

 

A year away from competitive sport would ensue

 

 

This will sound weird but I was relieved

 

 

I had lost my passion for football and needed a break

 

 

Such an injury forced me to do the inner and outer work

 

 

To become better physically and mentally

 

 

During the injury I read a book which described a game changing outlook:

 

 

The “better than before” mindset

 

 

Meaning it is not ok to constantly compare ourselves to a previous ‘better’ self

 

 

Don’t think about getting back to where you were before

 

 

Have the boldness to go further and want to be better than before adversity

 

 

I did all the rehab prescribed to me and started training the mind through mindfulness

 

 

These elements helped me to come back better than before

 

 

I focused on where I could improve and accepted where I couldn’t

 

 

I won’t get faster however I could get much better on kicking with my right foot and mental resilience during games

 

 

If you feel stuck lamenting a previous self and keep reminding yourself of that

 

 

And know this is holding you back

 

 

If you have the boldness to challenge these thoughts and tell them to fuck off

The featured image above with great friend and teammate Kevin Keary is the first title I have won as a player since the injury

 

 

After the final was the second time in my life that I cried tears of joy.

 

 

More on that in future broadcasts
